    It was pretty much the same. The hesitancy was small but enough to be noticed.

    The car is still parked up...idle. I took off the cam cover and did the disconnecting one injector at a time analysis. It wasn't such a great surprise to find that indeed when I disconnected one of them the car did start up - more than likely another faulty injector?
    Does anyone know which cylinder is cylinder number 1? Is it the one furthest from the windscreen or nearest?
    Thanks.

    Thanks Kenney.
    Well there you go guys...2 injectors in as many months!!! My car is a Sept 06 56 and only done 52k miles. Injector number 1 replaced only last month and now it looks like number 2 is faulty.....Anyway this time its going to the *********** and I'm going to get Audi to pay for as much as possible. This is simply rediculous.

    Ok point taken and yes the thread shouldn't turn into a "who should pay" thread.

    However, so called "specialist" garages have every right to specialise in what they do. If they can gain knowledge and experience on working on Audi's or any other car then why not? Why should the dealerships have a monopoly on servicing their own cars and use this position to charge extortionate rates? I don't agree with what you're saying in this regard.
    Yes, people should simply take out an extended warranty....if they can justify, what is it now 1500 a year? There are other independant warranty companies so people should shop around and obviously check the smallprint to be clear about what is covered.

    More on topic....I'm just shocked at how and why a part such as the injector should become faulty on so many cars at such a young age with low mileage....and now I have a second one to replace...too right I would look to get some sort of contribution from Audi in putting it right. It's clearly a manufacturing defect whether it becomes faulty within the warranty period or not. The injector is not a part which you would expect to replace for no other apparent reason - would you agree?

    Can anyone advise on what sort of injectors the faulty ones are actually replaced with?? Are they more reliable?
